TV: Sky Sports
At the London Stadium, West Ham face Chelsea in Saturdays early kick off, in a crucial London derby for both teams and West Ham will be hoping to avoid another defeat and potentially move away from the bottom of the table.
Chelsea however continued winning after coming from behind against Newcastle with two goals from Eden Hazard as he continues his impressive run of form. Chelsea will be hoping for a easy game against the Hammers as they remain at the bottom end of the table. A win for Chelsea will put them on equal points with second place Manchester United.
David Moyes has a fresh selection headache after Chiekou Kouyate and Michail Antonio both picked up knocks against City, meaning Moyes could recall Marko Arnautovic and Mark Noble to the starting line-up. Moyes also has Winston Reid, James Collins and Javier Hernandez to call on after they recovered from their respective injuries.
Chelsea on the other hand has no new injury worries. As Antonio Conte only remains without David Luiz.
West Ham: Adrian, Zabaleta, Reid, Fonte, Masuaku, Kouyate, Obiang, Arnautovic, Lanzini, Ayew and Hernandez.
Chelsea: Courtois, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Moses, Fabragas, Kante, Drinkwater, Hazard, Morata.
Chelsea should run out comfortable winners at the London Stadium against a faltering West Ham side. Despite the hammers resilience against Manchester City they were dominated by a lacklustre effort from City’s all-stars. Chelsea will have seen West Hams defensive display and will be prepared to break them down at will.
Score Prediction: West Ham 0 Chelsea 3
